Just kidding, sort of.

I guess you just have to work the math backwards knowing your crowd.

So let’s say 250, half men/half women, so we’re down to 125 dances.

Say 50% participate – 62 dances.

How long do you want each dance to last? 25 seconds? 25×62 = 1550 seconds

1550/60 = 25 minutes

WHOOPS – that is way too long! Guess you have to cut the # of people that you will dance with or the length of each dance.

Ummm… I’d do at MAX 2 songs, to be honest. But my crowd may be different than yours.

We are having 170ish.. We are planning between 3 and 7 depending on how many line up… If the dj sees the line dwindling to nothing, he will make the call to cut them

ETA: our families are HUGE on the dollar dance

@maria.perotti.3:  It must be a polish/swiss/german thing too because My mom’s side = Polish, Dad’s side = Swiss, His dads side = german, and his mom’s side = italian.. this might be interesting LOL
